Good Luck Amalfi...

My wife and I have just had our last meal at Amalfi. I consider Amalfi to be the cornerstone of Rocklands restaurant scene. The best part about eating our last meal at Amalfi is the promise of a new Amalfi...on the water. Amalfi will be moving down to the waters edge into an unimaginable kitchen that was originally imagined by the new's complicated. I am posting this to see if any other New England Chow Hound users have had a positive experience at Amalfi and would like to share a pleasant experience on this thread as a way to send good luck their way. I love to read about great experiences in restuarants that are special and are in special many great moments accented by food, it's beautiful.

  1. Yes, agreed. How many restaurants appreciate their customers enough to send their customers Christmas cards? We can't wait for the new location.

      Amalfi in Narragansett? If so, Our first few visits were very nice, beyond that my wife and i are unimpressed. they have not made a change to their menu in a number of years. the food at the outside bar is nothing to speak of either. If this is not the establishment that you are referring to then...never mind...

    2. I had the good fortune of working with Chef Dave Cook when Amalfi first opened, along with Chip Dewing and John Bailey. Dave has continud to learn and grow since I first met him in Camden, and working at Amalfi, despite all of the difficulties that new restaurants pose, was an experience that I will always cherish. I wish him the best of luck, not so much in creating his new venture, but in finding the type of staff he deserves - always a challenge in mid-coast Maine, but particularly in this season. I miss that paella, and I was just recently describing the Txakoli that was a perrenial favorite on his wine list. I'll see you there in October.
